I have a LR4 that just hit 60K miles. Is this something I should be doing, or is there a different plan for the newer models?

What are your thoughts on changing Trans fluid on high milers? Saw somewhere they said don't touch it if it has high miles and never been changed before.

Just bought a 2004 D2 with 124K. Appears it was taking good care of, but getting ready to do major service as a preventative and a baseline.

Ok, better to ask a stupid question than do something stupid.

Is Diesel engine oil different than motor oil? Could only find shell rotella t6 in diesel.

I balked at first also reading it was diesel oil but I believe it`s the same.

I'm trying to track down two leaks from under the d2. Looks like coolant and power steering. Are the plastic "plates" necessary? They are in the way, and I can't seem to remove them without removing major items. Can I just cut them out and throw away?

You need to start a new thread. You are posting in a thread/sticky that explains the service to do to a high mileage Disco II.

Mike, how difficult is this to do for a novice? What tools will I need to have? Am I better off going to an Indy to do head gaskets and an oil pan gasket than do it myself and run the risk of major damage due to ignorance? What exactly is an engine flush btw?

Sorry to bum rush you with questions, but I have some things that need fixing pretty darn soon.

Check Throttle Body Heater and Oil Pan - just had this issue last week - and they were the culprits - along with Valve Cover Gaskets
